I came to film making from anthropology and research on interethnic relations. I loved the fieldwork in research but was looking for a creative means of expression that would enable me to give a more personal point of view. I thus enrolled in a documentary training program in a renowned French film school, La FEMIS. The first film I directed was about a non-profit organization working with incarcerated minors and mountain climbing. I then started a film on women and marriage in Mali (west Africa). My last film, “Mutso, the Hinterland” has been screened in international film festivals and won several prizes.
